The Kameizumi CEL-24 Junmai Ginsho is an unpasteurised namazake. The brewery describes its aroma as pronounced with a fine balance between acidic and sweet flavours reminiscent of white wine and with hints of pineapple and apricots. It is made of Hattan Nishiki rice and CEL-24 yeast, hence its name. The rice grains are polished down to 50%.

The brewery:​


Kameizumi Sake Brewery is located in Izuma, Kochi Prefecture. It was founded in 1897 by eleven volunteers under the name "Humoto Saketen". Their sake was made with water from a spring named the “Eternal Spring” as its waters had never run dry in over three-hundred years. They named their first sake “Kameizumi” (亀泉, "Turtle Spring")”, alluding to the longevity of the water. In 1917, Kawazawa Tomigo became the first president of Humoto Saketen. Kameizumi Sake Brewery Co., Ltd. was set up in 1965 and is currently run by Kawazawa Tohru. It has six employees.

This is a namazake that seems to have more in common with a chardonnay than sake. Fruity nose with hints of pineapple and apricots, as claimed by its creators, in addition to pear, apple and melon. A fruity explosion. An equally juicy palate, full-bodied, sophisticated and round. From the moment you open the bottle the first contact with your taste buds, it feels alive. Fun to enjoy.
